Cricket might not be the most followed sport all over the world, but it surely has a massive fan base in countries like India, the UK, and several others. To honor the sport itself, as well as the Cricket World Cup hosted by England last year, game developer Microgaming has launched an online pokie called Cricket Star last year. Available at the Royal Vegas Online Casino, the Cricket Star online pokie is one of the few cricket-inspired pokies out there – and it’s not just for cricket fans.
Cricket Star is part of a series of sports-inspired pokies launched over the course of the last two years at the Royal Vegas Online Casino. All games in the series were launched in conjunction with major sporting events – Football Star was launched in the wake of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Rugby Star was released before the Rugby World Championship in 2015, and Cricket Star’s release date was close to the start of the Cricket World Championship. All games share the same compelling mechanic, beautiful visuals, and special features that make them some of the preferred games at the Royal Vegas and beyond.
Cricket Star, just like all other games in the Sports Star series, borrows a popular feature from today’s most liked puzzle games. Whenever its symbols (all cricket-related) land in a winning combination, they disappear from the screen, allowing others to fall into their place. This can trigger a cascade of wins, meaning more cash for the players’ virtual pockets. The feature, called Rolling Reels by the developer, is especially profitable during the game’s Free Spins, where each win increases the multiplier applied to the next one. During the game, some of the game’s five reels can randomly turn into Wild reels. This is followed by something not many pokies out there offer: a guaranteed win. This is, without a doubt, one of the most attractive features of this beautiful and atmospheric game.
